    Rules of the SOUTH

    If you are going to live, or visit in the South, you need to know the rules.
    In an effort to help outsiders understand the rural Southerner's mind, the
    following list will be handed to each person as they enter a Southern state:

    1. That slope-shouldered farm boy did more work before breakfast than you do
    all week at the gym.

    2. It's called a 'gravel road,' No matter how slow you drive, you're going
    to get dust on your Navigator. Drive it or get it out of the way.

    3. The red dirt -- it's called clay. Red clay. If you like the color, don't
    wash your car for a couple weeks -- it'll be permanent. The big lumps of it
    -- they're called "clods."

    4. We all started hunting and fishing when we were seven years old. Yeah, we
    saw Bambi. We got over it.

    5. Any references to 'corn fed' when talking about our women will get you
    whipped -- by our women.

    6. Go ahead and bring your $600 Orvis Fly Rod. Don't cry to us if a flathead
    breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for those little 13-inch trout
    you fish for -- bait.

    7. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

    8. Men, if you want to wear earrings, pierce your nose and whatevers, and
    wear your hair long, go right ahead, but if we call you ma'am, don't be

    9. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making their final
    approach, we will shoot it. You might want to ensure it's not up to your ear
    at the time.

    10. That's right, whiskey is only two bucks. We can buy a fifth for what you
    paid in the airport for one drink.

    11. No, there's no 'Vegetarian Special' on the menu. Order steak. Order it
    rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham
    and turkey.

    12. Tea - yeah, we have tea. It comes in a glass over ice and is sweet. You
    want it hot -- sit it in the sun. You want it unsweetened -- add a lot of

    13. You bring Coke into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over

    14. So you have a sixty-thousand dollar car. We're real impressed. We have
    quarter of a million dollar combine that we only use two weeks a year.

    15. Let's get this straight. We have one stoplight in town. We stop when
    it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow.

    16. Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks -- because they want to. So,
    you're a feminist. Isn't that cute.

    17. We eat dinner together with our families, we pray before we eat (yeah,
    even breakfast), we go to church on Wednesdays and Sundays, we go to high
    school football games on Friday nights, we still address our seniors with
    'yes, sir' and 'yes, ma'am,' and we sometimes still take Sunday drives
    around town to see friends and neighbors.

    18. We don't do 'hurry up' well.

    19. Greens - yeah, we have greens, but you don't putt on them. You boil them
    with either salty fatback or a ham hock.

    20. Yeah, we eat catfish, bass, bream, and carp, too. You really want sushi
    and caviar? It's available at the bait shop.

    21. They are pigs. That's what they smell like. Get over it. Don't like it?
    Interstate 65 goes two ways - Interstate 40 goes the other two. Pick one.

    22. Grits are corn. You put butter, salt, and maybe even some pepper on
    them. You want to put milk and sugar on them, then you want cream of wheat
    -- go to Kansas. That would be I-40 west.

    23. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season or dove season. Both
    are holidays. You can get pancakes, cane syrup, and sausage before daylight
    at the church on either day.

    24. So every person in every pickup waves? Yeah, it's called being friendly.
    Understand the concept?

    25. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit in the water hazards. It spooks
    the fish and bothers the gators -- and if you hit it in the rough, we have
    these things called Diamondbacks, and they're not baseball players.

    26. That Highway Patrol Officer that just pulled you over for driving like
    an idiot -- his name is 'Sir,' no matter how old he is.

    27. We have lots of pine trees. They have sap. It drips from them. You park
    your Navigator under them, and they'll leave a logo on your hood.

    28. You burn an American flag in our state, you get beat up. No questions.
    The liberal contingent of our state legislature -- all 4 of them -- enacted
    a measure to stop this. There is now a $10 fine for beating up the flag

    Now, enjoy your visit... I emphasize -- 'visit.'

    Sorry if if this affend aboudy just take this as a joke
